hair elastics using covered buttons

I love making hair elastics for little girls and using a covered button is a fun way to create something unique.  I purchased some buttons that I could cover from my local fabric store and then used some scrap fabrics to create my button.  I did find that if the cotton I used was too thin the back would not always stay in place, so I would use two layers of fabric. Attach a hair elastic to the back then add some Swarovski crystals to add that little bit of sparkle and there you have it...a cute hair elastic for that cute little girl.  You can get coloured elastics as well which would add another fun element to this cute elastic.
